that appears to show the mayor of the fourth largest city in north america smoking crack. this is a photo supplied by the people who are selling the video, gawker.com was the first source to break the news. their editor saying he traveled to toronto after he was approached to buy the crack smoking mayor videotape. the gawker editor said he did see the tape. he says he is sure that it is the mayor in the tape, but he did not buy the tape. the price was too high. nevertheless, he wants you to know it exists. the news is kind of like that today. even before you get to the details in the silvio berlusconi trial in italy where some of the prostitutes at his bunga bunga party were paid to dress up like barack obama, for whatever reason. it's that kind of day in the news. >>> today is scandal o'clock all day long. we saw the guy forced out of the irs grilled about the tax agency using single key words to skrine out people for scrutiny. he did tell two higher-ups last june that he was going to be doing this investigation into how the conservative groups were treated. he told the deputy treasury s
, executive director for the new york city coalition against hunger. nice to meet you. good to have you on the program. >> thank you, ed. >> how does this story hit you? >> incredibly hypocritical that the very conservatives that lit the match that burn down our economy are now complaining that we have to spend more money on firefighting. our economy is in a mess. i would prefer more americans to have living wage jobs so able-bodied parents could pay for their own food. you focused on this for years and years, the middle class has been dismantled, more people are falling into poverty and food stamps and s.n.a.p. are the only life preserver they have. >> people think it's just a number they're throwing out. do you see it? >> i see it every day. i would love to hear that republican congressman at a soup kitchen or food pantry, the response he gets when he tells low-income hungry americans that a few billion dollars cut out of their grocery budget is not a real budget. >> we spend a lot of time talking about income and equality. it's one of the biggest overriding stories and issues that ne
so low is under protest. five major cities, new york, chicago, st. louis detroit and last wednesday milwaukee have seen fast food workers walk out on the job in protest of their wages and inability to unionize. that protest in milwaukee this past week drew between 150 and 200 workers. according to estimates by the strikers organizing. that's a little bit less than the original strike here in new york drew back in november. but it was 400 or so fast food workers that walked out in the detroit metro area strike earlier this month. $15 an hour as a wage floor is what the protesters are seeking. the minimum wage they're being paid now starts as low as the national rate of $7.25 per hour. it's the same as it was in 2010 when the median food and beverage worker made $18,130 per year. that means if you're the sole earner in a family of three, you would have been at the federal poverty line in 2010, precisely at it. let's say hur lucky enough to work 40 hours a week. today at minimum wage in one of these restaurants that's only $15,080 perfect year. if you're one of those workers in -- the
